The Kootenay "Fruit Growers' Assocl-
liou iu quite satisfied that ll has made
no mistake in securing the services of
It. C. Brock as manager. His address
last night was frequently interrupted

J. J. Campbell's proposal for raising
revenue was approved and adopted.
Several changes in the constitution were
adopted to secure more efficient co-op

were: C. VV. Iii.sk. Jas. Johnstone, J. J.

ISO. The minutes ut the last meeting
were read aud adopted.
President C. W. Busk explained that
tlie meeting was called to enable the
members to meet the new manager, R.
C. Brock, to consider proposals for raising revenue, aud tu discuss several
resolutions of which notice has beeu
The last, being of the nature of unfinished  business,  was  tsken  first.

The motion was seconded by James

Capt. Paddon moved to authorize the
directors to refuse fruit not in prime
condition, or from growers who have
not shipped regularly with [lie association during the season. The motion
was seconded by J. J. Campbell and
Capt. Paddon also moved, seconded
by R. W. Hulbert. providing for suspension and penalty for inurkeling Independently, lie explained thut conceited action always was essential.
James Joluistoue supported the motion,
as did J. W. Ford, und It was adopted.
1). A. Boyd moved thai directors' ex-
pi uses iu unending meetings be paid
out of tliu IreUBiiry. J. Greenwood
O. B. Appleton thought tlie association could not stand the expense this
year.    K.  W.   Hulbert concurred.
After further discussion the motion
was   lost.
The report of the directors' meeting
held Tuesday night, March 17th, was
then presented.
' .1. J. Campbell submitted the proposals for raising necessary additional
revenue. He explained the action of
the directors In engaging it. C. Brock
as authorised by lhe association He
said they had taken the very successful
Hood Itlver organization as their model
In business methods. To give effect to
this policy It wus essential that adequate revenue be raised. He thought
tile acheme wns equitable as to the Incidence of taxation on individual members.
He then presented the four propositions  following:
A voluntary tax on Ihe basis of acreage
under cultivation, to net 11,600; a percentage tax on estimated crops of fruits
and vegetables, to net $2,000; a percentage tax on purchase of supplies, to
net $1,000; a charge of $10 per day and
expenses for oach special visit of R. C.
Mr. Cumphell estimated the maximum revenue required would be enally
raised by the methods proposed. He
moved their adoption, seconded by R.
W. Hulbert.
|      Mr. Brock  wished It understood that
the $10 per day charge for his services
should go to tlie association's treasury
not to him.
Oscar Appleton warmly endorsed the
proposal, remarking thut none would
appreciate expert advice more than
those who had spent years trying to
learn  by experience alone.
J. W. Ford also concurred. J. T.
Russell favored tlie adoption of the
scheme proposed but thought there was
danger of Mr. Brock's services being
Inadequately   paid for  by  some.
Mr. Campbell further explained that
the charge was intended to be levied
only for special service, which he
thought might be lert to the discretion
of tile executive.
The resolution was then adopted
amid applause.
Mr. Campbell remarked that some
funds would be needed at once. He
moved that a subscription list be opened, the amounts to be credited to the
assessments when determined. He offered $50.
James Johnstone seconded, offering
$50 more. ,
The motion was deferred for a time.
Mr. Appleton suggested that there
should be some agreement as to the
amount of wages to be paid for help, especially to pickers.
Mr. Johnstone remarked that a suggestion had been made by the C. P. R.
official.--, that residents of cities might
be found willing to do such work during
the season by way of an outing, the
railway company giving special rates.
He wished that he might be authorized
to convey some definite information on
the subject to Superintendent R. Mar-
pole, during a visit to the coast he will
make in a few days.
At J. W. Ford's suggestion J. J.
Campbell communicated the advice of
O. J. Wiggin. of Creston. who recommended the Wtirtielil rather than Uie
Magoon, insisted upon careful grading,
and would pay more during the first 16
days of the strawberry season than
later, and would pay by the small box,
or halleck, not by the crate.
R. C. Brock, replying to Mr. Hulbert,
said that In Hood River abundant labor
was obtained by employing Indians and
white labor of the class suggested by
R: .Marpole.
On a general discussion the concensus of opinion seemed to be that four
or five pickers to the acre was the
average requirement, with rather more
for the height of the season, and that
35 cents a orate was a fair price for
picking. a
It was resolved to leave the matter
for a few days to be decided by the
R. C. Brock then addressed the meeting. He sketched the history of the
Hood River orchard country from the
first serious attempt of an Ohio man,
Mr. Sears, in 1892, when he began with
a capital of $360 and planted 108 trees
on the first acre he cleared. The average net profit on apples from the first
Hi acres planted at $450 an acre, and
of the whole orchard now 119 acres, at
$270 an acre. The success of Mr. Sears
was responsible for the whole development of Hood River.
Mr. Sears had asked himself as he
looked at an utterly neglected farm was
"If such apples can be grown here with
such culture, what can be done with
Intensive culture?" That question he
The methods followed by the Oregon
pioneer were then detailed, his Intense
care, his rigid exclusion of blemished
fruit, his abandoning of unprofitable
varieties, his methods of handling and
marketing, and above all, his scrupulous
Mr. Brock urged the creation of a
class and the establishment of a reputation for Kootenay berries and Kootenay apples. He urged the selection
of one or two varieties and devotion to
them alone. In that way only could effective command of markets be won,
and he advocated careful study of the
demand in the markets they wished to
Mr. Brock then dealt with the history
of the Hood River Apple Growers' Association. It started with enthusiasm,
nearly collapsed the second year on account of quarrels and mistrust and mistakes, but gradually grew stronger and
now embraces nearly all the growers
ln the valley.
"If I can have 15 or 20 good men to
back me through thick nnd thin for
the next two yeurs, I'll guurantee to
put this district on as good a basis as
Hood River ever was," said Mr. Brock,
and waa greeted with a burst of applause.
Mr. Brock exhorted his hearers to
work together loyally and constantly,
to pardon honest mistakes and to support  and  thank  their  directors.
He especially advised devotion to
apples and pears rather than to perishable fruits, and Ihe harder varieties for
preference. He declined without fuller
local knowledge to recommend any
speclnl varieties. He thought he might
do so next autumn.
An informal discussion of varieties
of apples, pears and cherries followed.
In reference to the quotation of his
remarks in yesterday's Canadian Mr.
Brock explained that he did not mean
to condemn Irrigation generally, a supply of water was an insurance, but it
has been much abused and the evil results he had referred to were due to
abuse not to intelligent use.
Mr. Brock concluded wilh an appeal
for absolute compliance with all laws
governing the handling of fruit. He
also expressed gratification at the recent inspection of West Arm orchards
by  Inspoctor F.  Adle.
J. J. Campbell urged that the Dominion government he requested to make
provincial fruit Inspectors, Inspectors
nlso under the Fruit Marks Act. His
motion was seconded by .lames Johnstone and carried.
A vote of thanks and confidence In
R. O. Brock waa carried on motion of
Messrs.  Johnstone nnd  Paddon.

Saturday, March 21, 1908.
Our statement that Clifford Sifton Is
generally understood to be the organizer and chief beneficiary of the Imperial Pulp company was made with
full knowledge, and due consideration,
of his denial which our Contemporary
takes the trouble to reprint.
If Clifford Siflon's assurance is sufficient answer lo a charge, why is he
not still in tlie cabinet? On the score
of abilitx his only rivals In the party
are Aylesworth and Fielding. He
didn't disagree with tha party on any
principle of policy like Tarte nnd lihiir.
but he walked out in disgrace like
Hyman and Kinmerson. And yd our
contemporary naively suggests that are
ought to take his evidence In his own
defence as "conclusively showing the
charge be false." That surely was
written with tongue ln cheek.
But, to show that its support of the
Machine is not halfhearted, our contemporary proceeds: "Tnere is not a
vestige of evidence to Indicate that any
special favor was ever shown to the
Imperial Pulp company by any official
of the government. The company secured certain timber limits In exactly
the same manner as any other person
or company could do so, by putting In
the highest tender. There has been no
Interference with the rights of any
member of the public accounts committee and no attempt made to prevent the
most thorough investigation into any
transaction complained of."
Well. If ihe invariable resort to the
double cheque trie with no amount
specified as the tender, and the recurring "coincidence" that the aggregate
total was just enough to win, do not
constitute a vestige of evidence, we
have never seen evidence of anything
and do not  know what evidence is.
The last statement that there has
been "no attempt to prevent the most
thorough investigation into any transaction complained of." is so obviously and
ludicrously untrue that it would be flat-
ery  to call   it  a falsehood.
After keeping religious silence while
Conservative papers published the facts
about the contract between Sir
Charlea Ross and tlie Dominion government for the manufacture in Canada
of a service rifle for the use of the Canadian forces, tin- Machine press has
tin hardihood to rater tu it as an "exploded ���caudal." As a matter of fact
everj new pleco of Information that
is extracted Ln committee through the
teeth ul the- Machine obstructionists
puts th.it il, al in an ever worse light.
There is uot one feature of the case
thai is not as bad as it can possibly be.
it was retire sent.���,! as a scheme to en-
sura the production in Canada of a national Hie arm, made of Canadian mail rial lij Canadian labor. The factory-
was erected on part of the Plains of
Abraham aud will have to be removed,
at tlie public cost of course, to make
way  for the   Battlefields   Park.
The financial part of-The deal has
frequently been described in these columns. It is enough now io state that
tbe contractor has beeu paid regularly
in advance, and has now received many
thousands of dollars for rifles the manufacture of which is not even begun.
But the peculiar feature, which ls
only coming to light now. is that what
is Biipposed to be a distinctly Canadian
rifle, nnd that fact alone justified an
otherwise excessive price, is practically manufactured in the United States.
In short, Sir Charles Ross  is only oue I
11 .isj Daily Canadian
more of the long list of easy money
middlemen to whose fortunes the country Is contributing lavishly. And, worst
of all, the weapon has been tried by
the Mounted Police and abaudoned as
It Is bad enough that public money is
squandered so madly, but there ls a
still darker feature. Ovary' one of the
facts now demonstrated before the committee by the reluctant testimony of
those concerned, has been solemnly denied on the floor of parliament by responsible ministers of the crown.
We are sure that a great many people in Nelson, including even some of
his political supporters, are learning
witli surprise how extremely valuable
nnd Important a member of tlie legislative assembly Dr. Hall Is. And of
course there is nothing but pleasure in
the discovery. We learn, on the doctor's own authority, as sypnthetically
purveyed to the public by tlie accommodating organ of the party, that al-
though his main purpose In seeking
election to the legislature, was to find
a valid excuse for enjoying tlie soporific
climate of the beautiful capital, far
from the disturbing influence of patients' calls,���although such was the
doctor's golden dream, he woke from it
at the stern call of duty, and has become easily the hardest working member of the house.
Two columns and a half of the Liberal organ are devoted to a recital of
the doctor's doughty deeds. Of course
we have read all this matter before
but never all together, and cumulative
force is  something.
We are sincerely sorry to learn that
Dr. Hall had such a hard time getting
the  city's  new  debenture   bill   through

The Craving  for    Signs and    Wonder.
and   Chriat'a   Reply���Church
Services   Tomorrow.
Tomorrow will be tbe Third Sunday
in Lent. Wednettday will be the festival of the Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin Mary, commonly called
Lady Day, commemorating the appearance of tbe Angel Gabriel to tell fhe
Virgin that she was chosen to be the
mortal   mother of the  Incarnate  God.
The,gospel for the Third Sunday in
Lent is St. Luke's account of the casting out of the devil that waB dumb,
tbe accusation of collusion with powers of evil, Christ's reply and the parable of the unclean spirit that returned.
Demoniacal possession in many times
referred to In the new Testament. It
is also mentioned often, until a few
centuries ago, in secular writings. Belief in witchcraft and sorcery ls far
from being extinct even now.
Whatever be figured by tlie stories of
the casting out of devils, it is perfectly
evident that same malady was not uncommon in that age and country which
was ascribed to a malevolent spirit in
possession of a victim, who might be
exorcised. Tbe evangelists' references
are frequent and it Ib evident that they
do not regard such cases as exceptional.
But one passage of the narrative is
of peculiar Interest In the present age,
and perhaps as much so in Nelson as
anywhere else. "And others," says St.
Luke, "tempting Him, sought of Him a
sign   from  Heaven.     But   He,   knowing
their thoughts,"     refused the
sign and replied rather to those who
accused Him of deriving His power
from evil.
The seeking of a sign is of no age. It
is as universal and as keen now as in
the days of the apostlea or ln the earliest days of human consciousness. In
itself it is perhaps hardly reprehensible. The thirst for knowledge, the
desire for visible and tangible proofs,
is the chief cause of human progress,
and the means by which knowledge
grows from age to age.
But the seeking of a sign, if not in
itself wrong, is the sure indication of
an utterly wrong point of view in the
study of man's relation to his Maker.
The proof of Divine power, Divine justice and Divine love, is not given in
miracles or supernatural or exceptional
phenomena of any kind, but in the ordered universe of nature, and ln the
history of mankind, and in the dally
and hourly experience of each, but it
is for those who have eyes to see and
use them reverently.
The teaching of the Scripture, old
and new, ls direct and clear on this
point. When God Bpoke to Moses, He
was not ln the storm nor ln the fire,
but in the "still, small voice." The
reply ln the parable to tlie prayer ot
Dives that one might be sent from the
dead to warn his brothers, was: "If
tbey hear not Moses and the prophets
neither will they be persuaded though
one rose from  the  dead."
It is not only or chiefly In earthquakes and cataclysms that the mysteries of nature may be studied, nor
in world tragedies only that the mind
and soul of man may bo read, but ln
every commonplace thing and in every
hour of the apparently dullest life.
This truth, so often lost sight of, has
been  apprehended   rrom   the   beginning
by the greatest minds.    It is taught by
the  writer of  Exodus   in  the first  passage  quoted.      I*,  was     recognized   by
Aristotle   when   he   wrote   his   physics
before his metaphysics.    Ruskln declared   that the  liiiilicsi   expression  of  the
painter's   art   was   not   to   be   found   In
"lamp-black   and    lighting."      Perhaps
the   finest   modern   expression   of   the
same eternal  truth is Tennyson's
"Flower in the crannied wall
I pluck you oul  of the crannies,
Hold you there In my hand,
Koot and  all ln  my  hand.
Little flower, but if I could understand
What you are, root and all, and all in
I   should   should   know  what  God   and
Man ls."

expenditure of $100 per month. The
publisher appeals to the residents of
the Slocan to increase their patronuge,
so that he will not have to stand all
the expense. The review is one of the
brightest weekly papers published in
British Columbia und if the people of
the Slocan district consult their own
interests they will respond to tho appeal by increasing the revenue, not
$100 a month, but five times that amount. Every dollar spent In this way
will   return   many  fold.
